1.Fashion has two purposes: comfort and love. Beauty comes when fashion succeeds.
2.An elegant woman should be able to do her marketing without making housewives laugh. Those who laugh are always right.
3.Sem said to me, concerning some jewelry I designed: “at last we imitate the fake”. How right he was. It is impossible to wear lots of real jewelries unless there are women who wear lots of fake ones.
4.Coquetry, it’s a triumph of the spirit over the sense.
5.The generosity means accepting ingratitude.
6.Comfort has forms. Love has colors. A skirt is made for crossing the legs and an armhole for crossing the arms.
7.Fashion is at once both caterpillar and butterfly. Be a caterpillarby day and butterfly by night. Nothing could be more comfortable than acaterpillar and nothing more made for love than a butterfly. There mustbe dress that crawl and dresses that fly. The butterfly does not go tomarket, and the caterpillar does not go to a ball.
8.Fashion dose not exist unless it goes down to streets. The fashionthat remains in the salon has no more significance than a costume ball.
9.Adornment, what a science! Beauty, what a weapon! Modesty, what elegance!
